Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees

How many times a day do you Google something? Ten? Twenty? More? Individuals and businesses alike spend an extremely large budget to improve their search engine rankings by hiring professional SEO agencies like Art of War SEO. Imagine if all of that search power was going to good use.

Ecosia is a search engine, just like any other, that is out to change the world for the better - through trees. By donating 80% of its profits to a tree-planting program, Ecosia is committed to reforestation. Every time you make a search, your tree tracker counts how many trees you've helped to plant.

But even more than just trees, Ecosia involves communities, providing salaries for local people who collect seeds, plant trees, and sell produce and other forest goods to the market.

If only 10% of people use Ecosia to search the web, we could reforest the planet. Over 5 million trees have been planted so far. Check it out, use it, and share!
